Now that Allin has pointed it out, I do see that Mirowski's
language is not the most precise. Marx himself was clearer:

"Is it not a fact that, in the process of circulation or the
process of reproduction of capital, the value of one period is
constantly compared with that of another period, an operation
upon which production itself is based?"

"The relation between the value antecedent of production and the
value which results from it -- capital as antecedent value is
capital in contrast to profit -- constitutes the all-embracing
and decisive factor in the whole process of capitalist
production. It is not only an independent expression of value,
as in money, but dynamic value, value which maintains itself in a
process in which use-values pass through the most varied forms."

(Marx, TSV III, p. 154, p. 131.)
